On Monday, we got a real trade: A notable veteran (Santana) is heading for the Mariners, while Seattle sends a pair of pitching prospects back to Kansas City.

The pitches came in retaliation for throwing up and in on Mike Trout during Saturday’s game—with footage of Angels interim manager Phil Nevin threatening retribution to Mariners players surfacing afterward—and sparked 'The NeverEnding Story' of brawls, eventually leading to the ejection of six players and both managers.
